1) How old were you when you started?

--> never recieved any formal "lessons" but I have always been a horse junky so ever since I could just about walk I ate everything up horse. I have had the pleasure of getting to work under some amazing trainers that I would like to say have taught me a thing or to, I have also learned about 90% of what I know from just watching other horse people and reading up on just about everything horse. There is still alot I have to learn and alot of things I have yet to experience myself, but everyday is a new day and a new opportunity to learn something new :)

2) How long have you been riding?
--> first ride was probably when I was about 5 yrs old, but I have been riding in my dreams since about birth :)

3) How long before your first show?
--> I went to my first ever show back in about 2003, I was 12 turning 13 that year.

4) How long before you started leasing/owning?
--> I did not get my first horse until age 18 and he was a DREAM COME TRUE.
Toot N Toteum will run in my heart forever :)
Of course I claimed a lot of horses before then, always had a regular I was riding/showing, working at a barn for years helped round me into the rider I am today. I am so thankful though to finally have a forever horse, jumping from one horse to another gets old pretty quick.

3) How long before your first show? A while actually, i just rode for fun and did some ultimate cowboy/girl stuff at my barn and on the trail with my sisters for as long as i can remember, for the past 5 years i have been doing a team penning/sorting/ranch hand compitetions in my community every month
